Gifts are a genuine token of our love and affection for the people that own a special place in our heart. These are expression of our care and concern towards our loved ones. Gifts help in nourishing and building a healthy foundation for relationships. While there is no dearth of options when it comes to choosing a gift, there can be nothing more exciting than presenting something that is alive and grows with time.
Gifting indoor plants is a great way to acknowledge and appreciate the presence of your loved ones in your life. It is the simplest way of bringing nature inside the home or workplace and is worthy for any occasion, for people of any age group and gender. Instead of being just another gift item, indoor plants offer a unique set of benefits.
Here are six reasons to present indoor plants as gifts.
Natural air purifiers
What better a gift can be if it cleans the air around you? Keeping plants indoor helps in removing unhealthy invisible toxins from air, such as formaldehyde, benzene and carbon monoxide, which are usually emitted by everyday items like furniture, carpets, paints, perfumes and other household appliances. Plants are natural air purifiers that can protect us from getting respiratory problems, dry coughs and sore throat. Plants such as Chamaedorea Palm, Dwarf Rubber, Foxtail Fern, Areca Palm are good air cleaners.
Bring nature to home or workplace
Indoor plants are perfect for bringing a touch of nature inside the homes and workplaces. Having some greenery around instantly connects us with Mother Nature and creates a serene atmosphere inside, whether one works at the top of the skyscraper or lives in an enclosed apartment. Variant shades of greens effortlessly carry away the blues and spark up the spirits.
Reduce stress levels and elevate mood
Stress is a common problem in modern, fast-paced life. A significant amount of scientific evidence suggests that being around greenery can reduce stress levels and foster good mental health. Active interaction with plants like touching, smelling can lower down physiological and psychological stresses. Moreover, plants boost the mood readily by releasing cytokines, which then leads the brain to produce more serotonin.

They also enhance creative performance and problem solving skills. Not only this, plants in your children’s study area excel their learning outcomes and improves retention power. Jade, Hibiscus, Aralia, and Syngonium plants placed in vibrant pots can be great gifts for recipient of any age.
Alluring house decors
What is more interesting than decorating your house with indoor plants and bringing a sense of greenery in your drawing, living, or dining areas. Moreover, any awkward corner of your house can be filled up by soothing green plants. Placing them in study area, kitchen windows or hanging some plant pots in balconies spruce up the dull and boring spaces into lively greens. You can use trailing plants to create living wall or choose tall species to match high ceilings. Stylish plant stands and using wicker basket or eye-catching colorful pots lift up the aura of your home.
Promote good luck and good vibes
Several indoor plants are supposed to bring positive ambience and good luck in our lives. Lucky bamboo and Money plants are believed to bring prosperity and well being. Lucky bamboo is assumed to be related to all the five elements on which Feng Shui is based upon, which are wood, water, earth, fire and metal. Its hollow structure helps in the movement of essential Chi(Qi) energy which in turn generates more abundance.
